A former Logan youth pastor has pleaded not guilty to ten counts of sexual battery and four counts of sexual imposition.

Travis Branstetter, 29, was arraigned today in Hocking County Common Pleas Court.

He's accused of having had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female member of his church.

The relationship allegedly took place between November 2010 and February 2011.

Branstetter resigned his position with the Church of the Nazarene in February.

Bond was continued at $100,000.
